Event helps students have fun in spite of tragedy
MOORE, Okla.– Students who were affected by an EF-5 tornado earlier this year may have a difficult time adjusting to life again.
However, a group of police officers and an entertainment center in town are hoping to help them forget about May 20, even if it’s only for a little while.
The National Association of Police Athletic/Activities Leagues Inc., the Oklahoma City Police Department, the Moore Police Department and the Moore Public School District have teamed up to support students at Highland East Jr. High School.
The students, teachers, faculty, staff and their immediate families are invited to attend a private party at Hey-Day Entertainment Center in Norman.
Visitors can play in a multi-level laser tag area, an 18 hole mini golf course, a rope course, a host of video and arcade games and pizza.
The free party begins at 6 p.m. Tuesday and lasts until 10 p.m.
This is not the first group to enjoy such an event.
Private parties were also held at Hey-Day for Briarwood and Plaza Towers Elementary Schools.
